Make adjustments to your home for the summer to take advantage of a more relaxed environment. Get top tips from the Charlotte pros at Closet & Storage Concepts below.
With the summer season, you may not need as much storage for school activities. Adjust your storage containers for the items you’ll need in the summer such as beach and water toys. For example, you may want to use waterproof bins instead of more decorative wicker baskets to contain beach toys and minimize sand and dirt after a day in the sun. In addition, swap out items that you may keep during the school year for sunscreen, snacks, and beach towels to make your entryway revolve around your life in the summer.
Coordinate for warmer weather by changing up your closets. Swap out coats from the colder months and put sandals closer to hand. If it’s time to declutter, it’s a great time to make this your summer project and goal.
As for the kids, as they grow it’s a great time to declutter summer items that no longer fit such as swimsuits, shorts, and t-shirts. If you haven’t already, transition their wardrobes for warmer weather by moving items around so it is easier for them to reach. Move warmer clothes to out-of-season storage.
If you’re thinking about downsizing this summer or later in the year, you can use this time to make adjustments. Declutter and begin sorting items by area in your home. In addition, it may be time to start planning or hiring some help to move your belongings. Enjoy the time left in your current home by throwing a bash for friends and family before you move.
Crafting for Kids
Summer vacation may mean that you are with the kids in the summer. Make room for crafting in your home. Use disposable table cloths to prevent messes on your dining table or utilize a garage or spare room with specially crafted work top tables. Use baskets and bins to keep art supplies together and use cubbies, cabinets, and shelves to stow them out of sight.
